Roots music is alive. Thank you Carolina Chocolate Drops.

“The Carolina Chocolate Drops are…revisiting, with a joyful vengeance, black string-band and jug-band music of the Twenties and Thirties—the dirt-floor dance electricity of the Mississippi Sheiks and Cannon’s Jug Stompers.” —Rolling Stone

    There is so much to celebrate in the South. Such a waste when the focus goes away from all the heavenly attributes.

    If there is one thing that America has brought the world; it is musical genres that are distinctly American and so fine. This is a great example.

    I used to get a charge out of Obama groovin’ to a tune. The more a person can groove, the closer they are to being the best example of a human being.

      How nice to wake up and hear build #5. Was that a bone bridge? Or was that a composite bridge? I miss #5. It was my favorite of the guitars you built. But now, my favorites are the Smith & Wesson guitar and the John Deere guitar. Justin Johnson sure made that come alive. This video was made right after Justin received this guitar in the mail. He did not even have to tune it because it held it’s tuning even in the temperature changes of being in the UPS delivery system. Tuned and mailed out in the heat of Arizona and delivered in the cool of a Spring day in Nashville, Tennessee. The guitars that you build hold their tuning so well.

    Gotta love Rhiannon Giddens. I enjoy her voice quite a bit. You heard of Anna and Elizabeth? They travel around telling old stories and playing old folk music. They even have a cranky.
